Assembly Line Quilting

I'm not sure if this is really a term used in quilting but I think it describes the technique perfectly and it really comes in handy when there are a lot of exactly the same or very similar blocks to make. In the video, I've got 16 of the same fpp blocks that I assembled using this method. I started by stitching all the green and white wedges together along their curve. Then I went to the foundation papers and glued the first red piece of fabric to all of them. Then I stitched a green and white wedge to all of them, then I pressed that seam on all of them.... you get the point.

This technique made the blocks really simple because I was so focused on only one step over and over again before moving on to the next step. It certainly reduces errors.


Turns out that chain piecing is not the only trick to making a lot of blocks fast! Assembly line quilting saves time!


I can’t wait to share the peppermint sweetness with you!!! Pattern releasing soon! Happy Quilting

Hi! I'm Jen, a quilt pattern designer and teacher. I founded Snapdragon Quilting in the spring of 2022 in memory of my beloved Grandma Louise, a skilled seamstress and crafter who grew beautiful snapdragons in her garden. I've been sewing for as long as I can remember and began passionately crafting quilts of my own creation in 2006. My quilt patterns bring bold and vibrant designs that blend traditional piecing methods with contemporary techniques. I love to play with color and contrast so you'll find lots of layout and color options in my patterns. Whether you're new to quilting or making your 100th quilt, you're in the right place, because here at Snapdragon Quilting, quilt patterns make sense.
